On April 6, the Lake County Board of Supervisors proclaimed the month of April as “Bird Appreciation Month,” in Lake County. District Five Supervisor, Jessica Pyska, brought the request to the board on behalf of The Redbud Audubon Society, in order to honor the importance of the bird life in Lake County and on Clear Lake and to focus on efforts that every person in the County can do to make life better for birds. “April 22, 2021 is Earth Day and a bird appreciation proclamation seemed like a fitting way to honor this event as well,” noted Redbud Audubon president, Roberta Lyons.
